Deconstructing The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour

Explore the music written for the Magical Mystery Tour TV show, as well as the additional songs that appeared on the 1967 LP.

In 1967, The Beatles embarked on an ambitious project, writing and directing a one-hour film, Magical Mystery Tour.

The music written for the film is some of The Beatles’ psychedelic best. In Deconstructing The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour, Mr. Freiman delves into the creative process behind “The Fool On The Hill,” “Blue Jay Way,” “I Am The Walrus,” and other selections from Magical Mystery Tour.  Scott will also “deconstruct” other songs from the Magical Mystery Tour album, including “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Penny Lane,” and “All You Need Is Love.”

Scott Freiman is the creator of Deconstructing the Beatles, a series of multimedia presentations about the composition and production techniques of the Beatles. Mr. Freiman has presented his lectures to sold-out audiences at theaters nationwide and has spoken about the Beatles at colleges, universities, and corporations.

"For anyone who loves the Beatles, Scott is an amazing resource. His lectures are completely entertaining and well-constructed. You’ll come away with a richer appreciation for every element of the craft: songwriting, musicianship and production. Scott takes you deep inside the amazingly creative process. Even for songs you’ve enjoyed countless times, you’ll hear - and learn - something new."

Al Cattabiani, Owner, 1409 Entertainment and Garagista Music

"The best part is how much fun Scott makes it to go deep into the Fab Four’s creative process."

Pablo Kjolseth, International Film Series Dir., University of Colorado

"Scott’s deep knowledge of the Beatles’ music resonates with everyone - from guitar enthusiasts to music scholars!"

Carol Johnson, Executive Director, Amherst Cinema
